CS2 update brings viewbob changes and in-game telemetry options

Slightly reduced field of view will require some adjustments from snipers.

The latest Counter-Strike update has brought about significant performance improvements. In addition to the Bob and telemetry changes, there are also a few amendments to multiple maps, spectating and more. Here’s all you need to know about the latest CS2 update.

What’s new in the CS2 update?

There’s a new viewmodel bob in the latest update. The new bob settings give the game a more modern feel and in what is a certain deviation from the CS:GO era.

Meanwhile, the default telemetry and net_graph of the game have also received significant updates. The default CS2 telemetry option replaces cq_netgraph and is turned on by default. Users can also toggle it on using the command - cl_hud_telemetry_serverrecvmargin_graph_show. 

Scoped weapons also have a slightly different effect at the edges when scoped in, which leads to a new field of view. It will take some players a bit of adjustment, however, the new changes are not so drastic as to be completely unplayable.
